The reviewer found this book provides a comprehensive survey of key issues within suicidology that are important for practicing professionals. She believes it has the potential to be used as a text for medical residents & advanced psychiatrists interested in developing effective suicide risk management skills. However, she asserts the text does not provide a concise standard of care for suicide assessment & management that can be easily implemented when treating suicidal patients.
